MATLI HOLDINGS GROUP POSITION ON THE VIOLENCE AGAINST FOREIGN NATIONALS IN SOUTH AFRICA

Matli Holdings and all its subsidiaries namely, Mmadipotwana Media Pty Ltd, Matli H Nigeria Limited, Mmadipotwana Nigeria Limited, Gold Sea Asset Managers alongside all our partners and stakeholders across Africa and the globe, we stand firmly against the recent attacks of foreign nationals in South Africa by South Africans.

We value the journey of the African continent towards its liberation struggle to gain independence from the colonial era, the selfless contribution of various African Countries towards South Africa’s liberation struggle that led to its independence from segregation of 46 years in the monster named Apartheid in 1994.

GHANA we see you and recognize you as the first Sub-Saharan African Country to gain independence. Zambia, Tanzania, Angola, Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi and all front line States that fought selflessly for and alongside our South African liberation struggle stalwarts, we salute you and recognize you as our very own family.

Mostly importantly, we recognize NIGERIA and it’s immediate support to South Africa’s liberation shortly after gaining its own independence. We recognize and celebrate the great Abubakar Tafawa Balewa who persisted to engage in dialogue with other African leaders when the likes of Verwoerd declined. Nigeria despite “NOT” being a frontline State, stood for South Africa and funded the liberation struggle without hesitation.

We therefore call upon Nigerians in South Africa and Nigerians all over the world. It is time to look back and remember what your great leaders stood for and fight to reclaim your respect and dignity as the true giant of Africa. You are bigger and better than 419 scams, drug cartels, human trafficking and all these malicious crimes alleged against you all over the world, especially in South Africa.

We call upon our own South Africans to stop immediately with the violence against Nigerians and all African foreign nationals. We are here today a wounded Country with the aftermath of apartheid that our sister African countries helped us come out of. We have suffered segregation, oppression and we cannot afford to create a depressed Africa due to our negligence and ignorance. We are among the youngest democratic States in Africa yet the highest in HIV AIDS, in violent crimes especially against women and children. We are the most developed State amongst others, yet the most backward thinking citizens of Africa. Violence and intolerance kept us bound on our own land for 46 years, how then do we use the same ailments in our own land against ourselves? We are a black nation comprising of 54 Countries and we will actually include Somaliland and Western Sahara even if they are not yet recognized as independent States by the AU. 56 States and 1,286,920,158 citizens cut from the same cloth and walking the same journey. #Ubuntu Mzansi and let us let the law take its course in areas of grievance with crime against us. We have no right to take the law into our own hands, enough is enough, no more killing of our brothers and sisters, it stops now.

To the rest of Africa, a house divided against itself will never stand. Nigeria and South Africa are the two most powerful economies with ability to change our current plight as a continent. Instead of taking sides thus instigating more war between these two sister Countries, help contribute towards reconciling the two and uniting the rest. We call upon all of us in Africa to put down our weapons and hold hands in unity for the sake of the heritage of young ones yet to even come into this blessed land of Africa.

To all friends of Africa in the world, we thank you for your prayers and support. To all enemies of Africa instigating war and funding campaigns to destroy unity amongst Africa and Africans, this will not end in more blood shed but we will overcome and stand proudly in unity to rebuild our continent.
